MAGGIE is back on the zombie meat market
In zombie film lore, it can take anywhere from 6 hours to 6 minutes (and in some cases 6 seconds) for a human to die and rise again as a walking dead version of their former self. But in newcomer John Scott's MAGGIE, it takes a teenage girl 6 weeks to become zombified. But it may take longer than that still for the film itself to materialize.
That wasn't always the case for poor MAGGIE, which tells the story of a father trying to hold on to his daughter as she slips away more and more over a month's time due to a zombie pandemic. The spec script was close to closing a deal with producer (and director) Timur Bekmambetov (WANTED) but that fell through in the final hour. But all hope is not lost for the five million dollar film, set to be directed by first-timer Henry Hobson (Main Title Design Director on The Walking Dead) as it currently has at least three different potential, unnamed buyers.
We'll surely keep you posted, as MAGGIE seems to be one interesting property looking to dramatize the zombified genre in an interesting way.
